AOC Mocked for Attacking “Older Male” Democrat She Assumed Was a Republican

As reported by FoxNews

One of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., tweets seemed to backfire on Thursday when she tried attacking Republicans over a picture of a politician stood next to a cardboard cutout of her.

“GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” she tweeted. Her tweet included a post from the Republican Party of Kentucky. However, the politician pictured was Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth, Ky., not a Republican as she claimed.

This was the original tweet, AOC was referencing:

Ocasio-Cortez later deleted the tweet but not before critics pointed out the gaffe on Twitter.
